Daniel Razon vies for Best Journalist at ‘Oscars’ for Twitter
For the second time in a row, Shorty Awards picked Kuya Daniel Razon as one of the big six vying for the Best Journalist honors in Twitter. Congratulations Kuya Daniel!
Of 750,000 tweeted endorsements received by the Shorty Awards, Daniel Razon is one of the finalists in the Best Journalist category. The feat marks Razon’s second consecutive nomination as part of the big six vying for the best journalist honors in Twitter.
Razon, the only Filipino among the chosen six, will vie with Flavio Fachel (a Brazilian broadcast journalist), West Wing Report (an Independent White House journalist), William Bonner (also a Brazilian journalist), Jenni Hogan (a traffic anchor at KIRO 7 CBS) , and Who? What? Why? (an anonymous Fleet Street reporter).
The journalist from the Philippines is an advocate of Kahit Isang Araw Lang (Just One Day), a cause that encourages people to spare at least a day to help others or impact change within oneself. Through UNTV where Razon is a CEO, he has pioneered numerous social services like free private education and mobile schools for remote villages. He also became instrumental in the founding of transient homes, mobile clinics, free commuter rides, and the like, which are all geared to helping the poor and marginalized.
Considered unconventional as a Twitter user, Razon’s tweets are a mixture of news, current events, scientific facts and observations about life’s many realities, composed as a poetic 140-character posts. He also composes messages filled with biblical wisdom, which evidently showed the influence of Bro. Eli’s preaching to him. [Read more at Danielrazon.com]
